An amazing descent into Lory State Park.

Description

This trail can be ridden either way but is best as a descent. With sections of wide open steep, loose rocks, root drops, and short steep accents, this trail has a little of everything. The end has a bunch of water-bar drops that spit you out into Lory State Park.

Descending trail for a loop including Towers and the Valley trails. Seems to have been improved some in the last year! — 0h 40m

An XC 'descent' for sure, but a good one at that with opportunities to get downright rowdy between demoralizing climbs.

Rode up despite the review and description that said it's better down. Never up again
